The UGCC Women’s Fellowship was originally formed in 1996 at our first worship place, Holy Trinity Bethel Presbyterian church, by Mrs. Baaba Ofosu-Donkoh. The first president was Ms. Janet Mensah. The group started on a good note but could not survive after two years due to some challenges beyond members’ control.
In July 2000, Mrs. Baaba Ofosu-Donkoh again formed an interim committee to revive the group. On August 20, 2000, the first executives were elected namely:
Under the able leadership of the executives since 2000, the group became very stable and was considered a member of the National Association of Women’s Fellowship of North America and officially inaugurated in April 2005. The group has been very stable since its second formation in July 2000 and inauguration in 2005, with growth of 56 active members on record.
Current Executives (August 2017-August 2020)
The Women’s Fellowship is one of the backbones of the church, contributing in church development and promoting activities that will attract more women into church membership and also supports its members and nonmembers in various ways.
